Synopsis from Goodreads

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes an all-new story in her bestselling Big Sky Royal series!

Princess Eleanor has had it up to her royal eyeballs. She’s surrounded by suitable men, each more rude and obnoxious than the last. None of them are worthy of her heart—not to mention her virginity. So what’s a girl to do? Flee to Montana to stay with her brother, lay low, and avoid both the media and the men, that’s what.

Liam Cunningham is the head of security in Montana for the royal family. For a man who has seen the worst of human nature in the Army, being in Cunningham Falls is a balm to his tattered soul.

Princess Eleanor, on the other hand, is a royal pain in the butt. She’s proven in the past that she’s a troublemaker. She’s also beautiful, smart, and everything good in life that he doesn’t deserve.

But when Ellie proposes the idea of Liam being her sex coach, how can he resist?

Review

Enticing Liam is a fairy-tale romance with touches of topical issues thrown into the mix. Thought-provoking in such a way as to raise awareness and promote empathy for the issue covered within the narrative.

Eleanor (Ellie) is a sweet, kind-hearted person who rarely gets to relax and let her guard down. Being able to feel comfortable enough to reveal her vulnerabilities is a huge fete for Ellie and a gift for the people she allows to see her natural self – this includes Liam although he doesn’t realise what a gift it is.

Liam has his own problems having survived multiple tours with an elite special forces group. His PTSD is relatively well-controlled all things considered. However, it does leave Liam in the mindset that he is unable to sustain healthy relationships.

What begins as a ‘fling’ for Liam and Ellie soon morphs into something completely unexpected thanks to the intensity between the pair. Although their tryst is undertaken while Ellie is on vacation and as such the real world isn’t a factor in their fledgeling feelings.

Moving beyond ‘fling’ into relationship takes some navigation especially with Ellie’s role within the royal family. The way in which Ellie has to form a detachment in order to cope with malicious people was insightful. Although it did serve to highlight the differences between Liam and Ellie.

On the whole, Enticing Liam is a quick read full of romance and heat with explorations into topical issues.
